Google app searches continue to deliver different results

Since last April 2015 when Google officially changed to its ‘mobile friendly’ web page requirements we’ve been monitoring our own search terms using our unique keyword benchmark techniques

Our first full test was completed back in March 16, we’ve just completed another deep search with some interesting results.

See table…
The first set of searches were competed on a desktop PC (not mobile) and then using the same search terms on the office HTC M8 mobile phone using the popular Google app. You can see that the mobile device is influenced by our ‘mobile friendly’ website and continued SEO policy of refreshing data (usually using news posts)
